Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!
Now, first of all, here is some news about Little Tommy Chops. It seems he has contracted 'Streptosheepypooandcatdroppings'. It's a nasty little bug that can be got from sheep poo or cat poo!
(loads of sheep around him but not sure about the cats!)
Or, it might have been got from unwashed food like raw carrots. We are still awaiting the final diagnosis but that is the favourite theory at the moment.
As you get older you are supposed to develop immunity to the nasty thing but little puppies are likely to pick it up.
Mind you, anything to do with cats is trouble, that's why we keep them out of our garden!
Claws crossed for Tommy and someone should tell him to stick to the rabbit poo, it's mostly grass and helps sort out your tummy grumbles!
Hey! Archie Babe, that Wee Scoop is wot OTL uses down this end of the world. I had trouble with my water works and he had to get a sample from me. Now the first time I was taken by surprise but the next time I was ready. I was taken out, on my own, on a short lead. I knew there was something going on.
Then, just as I got in position, OTL whipped out the wee catcher and shoved it under me.
So, I didn't go, I just walked on a few paces, then I did it again.
Then I walked on a few paces and again assumed the position, only to change my mind and walk on!
It was o much fun that I kept it up for ten minutes or so until I just couldn't wait any longer!
Now, we know that you don't subscribe to the Fluffy Ferret Forum but we like to look in and see what other ferret people are doing and get some tips on ferrets from Two Legs who have ferrets.
Now, for the last few days there has been a 'string' about food dehydrators. You see you can get ferret and woofer treats in the form of chicken fillets, which I just love, but if you go to Pets 'R' Us a bag costs just over £3! OTL has been hunting around on the Internetty Thing and found the same thing for £2 a bag, but he has to buy in bulk of thirty bags at a time! Loads of dosh!
Now this string is all about dehydrators and it is following two ferret people finding all about and learning to use a dehydrators to dry out chicken, beef, apples, oranges, bananas, carrot and a load of other stuff!
You can even produce Beef Jerky, which OTL loves, when he can get hold of it!
Now, you can guess what has happened, today it arrived and OTL and TM have been looking, reading and researching all about the thing!
Looking at the instructions, it will be about a ten hour performance to produce anything, but, if they can produce chicken like the chicken fillets it will be a great saving and also, all the dried fruit will be a great substitute for chocolate bars, choccy biscuits, crisps and fruit pastels!
As you can guess, OTL is trying to slim down a bit and loose his 'Tummy'. He is on a strict diet of salad and meat at the moment plus as many plums as he wants, but dried fruit to add to his nibbles seems like a good idea!
Of course TM wants to try it as well and all us woofers are just dying to taste the chicken or beef!
More news when it comes!
See you tomorrow!
